Chan Siu-cheung directs this low-budget, critically panned horror yarn. The film opens with beautiful lass Yin-ying (Eileen Tung Oi-lung) drowning herself in a lake just before her arranged wedding when her true love Yin-lin (Michael To Tai-yu) is murdered. Fast forward 60 years to the present when dead bodies keep turning up in the same lake where Yin-ying committed suicide. Beautiful singer Florence -- who looks just like Yin-ying (and who coincidentally is played by the same actress) -- is being pursued by lecherous cop Jeff (Lau Siu-kwan) -- who looks just like the thug Yin-ying was forced to marry. Jeff is convinced that outlaw Li Chie -- who happens to look just like Yin-lin -- is responsible for the spate of killings. Tragedy ensues.
